Forgotten birds...

One of the best things about challenges is, not only do they force you to break beyond the comfort zones, they also make use stamps you'd totally forgotten about!

The current Embellish challenge is a fun one: a pink, brown and green colour scheme that had to incorporate birds:




Even though I've used the birdhouses from PTI's Birdwatching set a few times, I'd totally ignored these super-cute birds! So glad I re-found them!




Recipe:

Stamps: Birdwatching (PTI)
Card: Stamper's Select White/Dark Chocolate/Raspberry Fizz(PTI)
Ink: Colorbox Chalk
Other: Ric-Rak die (PTI)/Raspberry Fizz & New Leaf buttons (PTI)/Corner Chomper

Oh and I wanted to thank the ladies from Embellish for picking me for their top picks for their previous challenge - thank you gals!

Thanks for stopping by!
